The Irregulars on Netflix has a gay male character. Don't expect too much though.

Found this. Have no idea where it's from and it's in Spanish. I'm guessing Argentina due to the accent.

Seems like Spain has the same issue as rest of the world. They have had a ton of lesbian storylines yet very few gay male storylines. Recently there was a lesbian storyline from the war. No gays in sight though, of course. To their defense at least the few gay storylines they do have are usually done well, unlike the shit we get from American tv shows.

Found this. Seems like there's a gay storyline. I think the show is called The Oval? Looks like it's another soap from Tyler Perry.

Who Killed Sara is a new Netflix show with a gay storyline. Only seen 3 episodes but it's good so far. I recommend watching it in Spanish with English subs though. It's not quite the same with fake English voices.

Finnish soap Secret Lives which I believe is now down to 1 gay character named Kalle but did create a spin-off show set in an alternate reality where where 2 characters named Noel and Jiri from the main show are straight but on the spin-off set in an alternate reality they are gay and couple.

R9 I heard that they eventually fired cute Ronny Roslöf who played gay Lari after Petteri Paavola decided to leave the show and that Ronny is now selling real estate. I wonder if the spinoff is any good.

New Zealand soap Shortland Street. Resident gay Jack Hannah is single once again. This time after his recent marriage to Matiu Thompson seems to have hit the skids.

This summer should be good. A couple of weeks until the second season of Love Victor, then there's the Gossip Girl reboot in July.

There's also the Welsh soap Pobol y Cwm. It seems that there are some people who want Iolo and Gary to get together despite being him straight. They also don't want Iolo to get back with Tyler who recently broke up with his twink boyfriend Aled.

Masterpiece Theater on PBS just ran a short two episodes show called “Us” based on a prominent British novel from a few years ago that centers on a Grand Tour family trip of the continent. The gay part is a twist. Excellent performances and stunning scenery of Paris, Amsterdam, Venice and Barcelona for those missing travel. Inexplicably, it was four parts when it aired in the UK, not sure why they packaged it as two here? But all available on the PBS app for free at the moment if your looking for an European escape this holiday weekend.

Has no one mentioned the vacuous sitcom on Netflix called “Pretty Smart” about a LA household of social media millennials and one of them is a light skinned passing ethnically ambiguous Queen influencer? Greg Sulkin is also on hand as a usually shirtless gym boy trainer Himbo to flash abs, ass and muscle to keep the Gays actually watching. It’s like if Three Company was made for the 21st century, and you will lose brain cells for watching. But it’s better then the Gays in La Brea, who all they did this week was eat grass.
